To some, this film will seem uninteresting and boring, strange, and prolonged, incomprehensible and meaningless. But for fans of Scandinavian cinema or those looking for something new in the film, this picture will be a real boon.

The film begins with that the little girl with his father is the winter forest. The child is a little ahead and then they notice ahead of the deer. Girl fascinated for him watching and the father, the hunter takes his gun and aims, but not animal... the Man aimed straight at the nape of his daughter. However, after a few seconds the same lowers the gun from the rustle of the deer is frightened and runs away. "What the stuff again filmed these the Europeans?!" — think some. But not rush to conclusions, in the second half of the film will be on their seats.

What movie? About girl the name of Thelma who go to study in one of universities of Oslo. Her parents — very pious people, who carefully watched over the daughter of the whole life and continue same the spirit, though, and in the distance, even when they daughter quite a big girl. And that Thelma slowly, step by step, to know that such free the life of modern young people, open-minded and not fixated on some serious things. Of course, such a sharp transition is not so easy given the main character. And finally all she another falls in love with the girl Anya. And then begin to happen strange things...

But this plot and what same a movie on fact? Probably about how it is not necessary to raise children, and that the spirit of freedom, this from nature, all the same can escape from the cells of religious prejudice and inferiority complex. And how sometimes it's hard to find harmony between the inner world and the outer.

This movie — thin psychological drama with elements of Thriller and mystery. Fans of this genre will watch with special interest as the story told by the filmmakers of intriguing and the plot can not be called banal. The actors are very good, most importantly — not to forget that not a Hollywood movie, where it often happens that the emotions of the characters as not just exposed to , but even hypertrophied. We have all of the same Scandinavian film and it — a certain atmosphere. Even the picture looks different from the Hollywood tapes — not so bright and saturated, but this stylish Scandinavian (there are even some special effects like opportune fit into a common, dreary, cold, color).

Overall impression of view there was a very positive and therefore a high score.

A mere coincidence or the law of the cinematic nature? Movies whose titles consist only of the name minimum — decent high — true masterpieces. To Amelie, Leon, Elizabeth, ray, Juno, Hannah and Nell joins Norwegian-French-Danish Thriller "Thelma".

Norwegian dad, looks like Leonid Yarmolnik, leads a cute six-year-old Norwegian daughter on hunting Norwegian wood. The girl stops at the frozen lake and staring under the black ice. So hard that I start to worry, but nothing happens. As just exhale, then dad aims of the guns the head daughter, while she spellbound looking at out of the thicket deer. And you wanted the country won barnevern, — grumbling quite understand the audience and scoops another handful of sunflower seeds.

Cute Norwegian girl (ingenious audience is thought that have Thelma) becomes a cute Norwegian girl. Dad changed the gun on the total control of the Christian type — all are more generous than in the head to shoot. Thelma goes to the Institute begins strange, new, independent life: parents just daily calls Yes infrequent visits. To start it met with beautiful darkie Anna and beats the seizure that would later be diagnosed as psychogenic non-epileptic. While doctors study the medical records and stick the girl of the transaction, the viewer learns the secret of Thelma the Thelma before.

Striking a glass black crow interruptions electricity her fits pretty quickly give us understand what kind of genre we are dealing with. The essence of supernatural superpowers of the heroine, the spectator attains to the middle of the movie (not because he's so smart, and just a flashback), Telmo also have to go a long way. This way of understanding the essence — where by chance, where hallucinations, and where with the help of medications — forms the basis of slow, but not a slow-moving plot.

Scandinavian minimalist picture here there is decorated with disturbing the Symphony soundtrack, feathery splotches of blood in the milk underwater swim in imaginary real reservoirs. Like angular on the outside, but inside the cosy Scandinavian Lodge, a film by Joachim Trier (no, not relative) manages to fit in itself, short but reliable, romantic story that the father of Thelma diminish to escape loneliness, and understanding the audience seeds — up to hateful LGBT propaganda (but the view from the screen removes any for a second). This story, though, and fragmentary, but careful, sensitive and air — with unexpected touches the back of the fingers and a love of individual hairs.

Why "manages to fit"? Yes, because after all, it is the film is not about love, except that in the broadest sense, in that do everything always — about love. Love to Ana — one of tools that helps Thelma realize hiding in her terrible power, which can become a beauty just coming out of the shadows, when full control and good will.

Ejecting forcibly pounded superpowers of the depths of the unconscious the same time with the formation of the personality, with overcoming loneliness and alienation. Thelma leaves the nest and is exposed to the basic temptations: sex, drugs, alcohol, modernist performance in Opera. In another hallucination, she even have a spectacle to swallow and to vomit back the green serpent-tempter, to have no doubt. From each parent has reason for a long time to walk from the nest a chick yellow, unblinking eyes, and much parents of Thelma, these reasons particularly compelling. To understand them you, cannot be forgiven, despite the that pop — the bearded man. And there was nothing in his head to aim.

And there is nothing to sit at home. If you out "Thelma", then see too dark, not very scary, but worrying cool dramatic Thriller. Sympathize cute and confused Norwegian girl. To know if pump up a person with a lethal superpower, psychotropic drugs, then make sure he sees no idea.

For me it without a doubt the best film of the last year, but I wouldn't became to recommend to everyone. And not from what he periadrenal and difficult for perception, on the contrary in it is quite straightforward references and symbolism school level. The he is not suitable for leisurely viewing at home in bed after work, it requires involvement and attention to detail.

This film is matryoshka, and as the narrative changes the meaning and context. A red thread through the entire film is the relationship of children and parents and awareness of his choice. Addresses themes of growing up and defining their own place in the world, managing your "cockroaches"/supernormal and self-flagellation for "life in sin" (a bonus — a lesbian lovestory).

Film is so diverse that it doesn't fit in mind this is organically equip in not so long duration. PS hint: abstracted from the mystical background and focus on the psychological moments of the film, of which there is not enough. If you stop thinking of history as something is not zaprudnoe, it allows you to see a lot of secondary themes.

Well, the actress. Looks very similar to the Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo, but with intelligence in his eyes. Revealed gradually that for me it was a big surprise. Yes film, and all solid surprise, which is not fit into any one genre. When Asian cinema have not catchy, then it's time to move on the Norwegian.
